London (UK) Album Discography, Part 3:
LZ 14000 (10-inch) American Jazz Series (1954-1956)

By Patrice Eyries, David Edwards, Mike Callahan, Randy Watts and Tim Neely
Last update: July 4, 2012

About the same time that London started the green-label 10-inch "Origins of Jazz" series, the started a red-label 10-inch "American Jazz" series using the LZ-x 14000 series (where "x" was a letter designating source label). The American Jazz Recording series started in 1954 and was overtaken in 1956 by the 15000 12-inch "American Jazz Recording" series.

Most of the albums in this series came from either Bethlehem (N) or Savoy/DeeGee (C). Later issues were from Tampa or Liberty, both of which were designated by the letter "U."

The label for the LZ 14000 series was dark red with a silver field at the top of the label. Below the London name was a ribbon which read, "American Jazz Recording".
